The New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 6-3

The New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 6-3, Kuroda pitches well

The New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros by the score of 6-3 on Saturday afternoon. Hiroki Kuroda made the start for the Yankees and pitched well. Mariano Rivera made another appearance and continues to amaze. He only needed eight pitches this time out to retire the sides. Robinson Cano hit a homerun that went out of the stadium. The Yankees even got some good news on their injuries today.

Kuroda pitched four innings giving up three hits and one run. He struck out two batters and picked up the win. In spring training you don’t have to go the five innings, it doesn’t matter anyway. Rivera pitched a 1-2-3 inning striking out one, Cory Wade pitched two innings giving up one hit and a strikeout and Dellin Betances pitched an inning giving up two hits and he struck out a batter.

Brett Gardner had two walks, Curtis Granderson had a hit, walk and an RBI and Robinson Cano had a hit and three RBI. Bill Hall had a hit and an RBI, Raul Ibanez and Colin Curtis each had a walk. Andruw Jones had two hits and an RBI, Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix each had a hit.

Granderson had a double and Cano and Hall each had a homerun. The Yankees were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base. Nix and Gardner each stole a base and Curtis was caught stealing. Hall did commit an error for the Yankees.

The Yankees will play the Orioles tomorrow night in Sarasota.
